The quest for light

In the landscapes, I seek above all to capture the light, to approach it. I am fascinated by its games and the life it brings to even the most insignificant, forgotten things. Light sublimates everything and gives us a simple message: beauty is everywhere if we know how to look. In my paintings, I like to capture what it reveals, the movement and the changing character of nature. Translating light, air, movement and my sensations is my deepest motivation.

The pastel, why?

For its speed of execution, essential outdoors, but also for its pictorial quality, purity, the vibration of its colours and its reactivity.
Pastel is colour in gesture.
